Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis so book early to avoid disappointment.  The deadline for team entries is Friday 7 April.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the Sheffield Scanner campaign.

The Sheffield Scanner campaign aims to provide an MRI-PET facility in Sheffield, the first such facility in Yorkshire. MRI-PET is the most powerful imaging technology currently available and this facility will transform our research by increasing our understanding of the causes, effects and development of many kinds of disease.

An MRI-PET scanner combines images from Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) to provide a superior diagnostic picture in a single scan. Capturing anatomy and metabolic activity together enables us to see what is happening inside a diseased organ with unprecedented detail and whether it is responding to treatment.

The MRI-PET scanner will be invaluable for many diseases, including:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • Diabetes
  • Heart and lung diseases
  • Infectious diseases
  • Motor Neuron Disease (MND/ALS)
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Stroke

The MRI-PET Facility will be located at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital on the central University campus, ideal for both direct clinical use and for research programmes across priority disease areas.

MRI-PET is the future of imaging research. The ability to perform this type of imaging is crucial for cutting edge medical research and will provide us with a real opportunity to bring about treatments for patients more rapidly.
